This, the second album by Abominations of Yondo, has among its influences the penultimate chapter of 'The Time Machine' by H.G. Wells. However, the listener is of course free to associate other scenarios, memories or febrile imaginings with the assembled sounds.
The moment of 'Escape Velocity' owes a stylistic debt to the work of the master synthesist and producer Isao Tomita, to whom the track is dedicated. The album as a whole is dedicated to all people who feel obliged to space-time.

That Remote and Awful Twilight by Abominations of Yondo
This is one of those Ambient albums that is loaded with nuanced synth sound textures and because of that I think an album like this in a tiny way shows Abominations of Yondo going above what many other synth using musicians are choosing to do with their patches. It is a dark, moody sounding album that might be best played when you are in the middle of some kind of Sci-Fi themed PC game or pen & paper RGP. Other than that I am not sure its quite as good to try to use it anywhere else. This album wasn't written to catch the ear of the listener quite the same way that bigger Pop songs with regular hooks are and this isn't like most anyone's idea of dance music, but for what it is its pretty good. I give this album four stars.
